Experiencing yoga as a group can be empowering and challenging all at the same time. We are able to push our selves toward new goals, but at the same time are reminded to draw inward and listen to what our bodies have to say. The group experience allows us to connect as a community and offers motivation to continue in our practice when we are faced with staleness or fatigue. Mo-Yoga can offer in-home group sessions for friends and family as well as "yoga parties" with a more playful tone for fun and camaraderie.
The International Association of Yoga Therapists defines Yoga Therapy as "the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the philosophy and practice of Yoga." Morgan can facilitate holistic healing in her clients by utilizing Yoga Therapy techniques in combination with their traditional treatment plans.
Typically, a person might come to a Yoga Therapist for assistance with a physical, emotional or mental health issue. Some examples might include injury rehab, pain relief, or stress management to improve overall well-being. During an initial assessment, the therapist may evaluate topics such as postural overview, range of motion tests, gait analysis, and exploration of spiritual and mental characteristics. The therapist and client work together to determine key wellness goals on which they will focus. A Yoga Therapist works in conjunction with the client's other Healthcare Providers to offer tools toward better living.
Since every person sees a Yoga Therapist for unique reasons, treatment plans will be individualized. They may include things like breath work and yoga-based physical exercise as well as Reiki or body work such as myofascial release or massage. Long-term physical habits can have an impact on our emotional health, so as treatment progresses, therapy sessions can heal emotional aspects in addition to helping the physical ailments.
Yoga can increase productivity by easing physical discomfort and enhancing focus. Mo-Yoga can work with your employer or workplace wellness committee to determine the optimal time of day for classes. In some instances, the employer may subsidize some or all of the cost, and other times attendees may pay a direct fee per class. Corporate workshops on wellness topics or physical yoga sessions within a multi-day conference setting are also options. Every facility is unique, and Mo-Yoga will help design a class that will work best for you. Contact Morgan to create a yoga plan for your workplace!
This 100 year old Japanese energy healing practice can help to relax or energize you, and following a Reiki session, many experience a feeling of awakening as if more accepting to the universe. During a session, a Reiki Practitioner will assist to channel energy by using hand placements on and around the body. Each recipient has different experiences, but one described feeling "more relaxed than during a massage" within the session and "motivated to take on pending projects" after a treatment. Morgan has received training to Reiki Level II through Paula Petri at Angels Landing and Wellness in Two Rivers, WI.
